Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

"Wakanda Forever" is the sequel to the popular Marvel movie "Black Panther" and will continue the story of the Wakandan people and their hero, T'Challa, played by the late Chadwick Boseman.

A sequel to Black Panther (2018), it is the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole. "Wakanda Forever" stars Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Daniel Kaluuya, Dominique Thorne, Michael B. Jordan, and Tenoch Huerta.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and follows the nation of Wakanda as they mourn the death of their king, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), and must find a new leader. The film introduces a new villain, Namor the Sub-Mariner, who is played by Tenoch Huerta. The film opens with a funeral procession for T'Challa, who died in Avengers: Endgame. His sister Shuri is crowned the new Black Panther, but she is reluctant to take on the mantle. Meanwhile, Namor the Sub-Mariner is angered by Wakanda's decision to keep their advanced technology a secret, and he declares war on the nation. Shuri and her allies must unite to defend Wakanda from Namor's attack, and they must also find a way to honor T'Challa's legacy.

The film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever received mixed reviews, with praise for its performances, action sequences, and visual effects, but criticism for its uneven tone and pacing. On the one hand, it has some of the best action sequences, and the visual effects are top-notch. The performances from the cast are also excellent, with Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, and Martin Freeman all giving standout performances.

However, the film is also uneven and tonally inconsistent. The film tries to do too much, and as a result, it doesn't quite live up to the potential of its predecessor. The film also suffers from the loss of Chadwick Boseman, who was a major part of what made the first film so special. While the original Black Panther movie, was two hours and 14 minutes in length, Wakanda Forever is two hours and 41 minutes long.

Overall, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a good film, but it's not great. It's worth watching for the action sequences and the performances, but it's not a must-see.
